Survivor Stories

These days dealing with canine cancer can be frightening. You have statistics. You have your veterinarian explaining what the cancer can do and what the prognosis is.  There is still not a miracle cure for dog cancer but do you know there are many dog cancer survivors?

We believe at times like this, one also needs HOPE. It’s our belief that these canine warriors who have survived can provide you with some HOPE. Read through the survivor stories on these pages and take away some HOPE that your sweet pup can win the battle.

Together, We Are The Cure

Would you like to share your dog cancer survivor story for our supporters to give them hope? If so please email us at and please send your dogs story, name, your name and a picture.

Thank you,

Gary Nice

Maggie’s Story

My little cancer survivor was my dog Maggie. she had cancer for about 2 weeks before she showed that was hurting.Such a trooper! the day we found out,we were so sad. on Tuesday, July 19th, we had to put Maggie to sleep because the cancer was effecting her breathing and weakened her legs, she could barely walk on that Tuesday. That’s why my little cancer survivor was my dog BFF Maggie.

Sadie Girl’s Story

My Saide was Diagnosed with Lymphoma at the young age of 1 1/2. Ill never forget that day. It was Thanksgiving 2012. I have never felt so emty in my whole life, My baby was sick and possibly dieing. I had to come to terms with it and fight with her. We went to the best oncologist in our town and he was amazing. She was put into remission right away and now almost two years still in full remission. I cant bare the the thought of ever losing my baby girl at a young age, i wanted to give her the best full and long life i could possibly could. My prayers are that she stays in remission and we can have around for years to come. I love you Sadie with all my heart…. Love Mom

Miley‘s Story

At just a year old, Miley was diagnosed with cancer. Her odds did not seem to be in her favor, but we went ahead with treatment. The doctors said they had not seen any dogs surpass 2 years after treatment. Just last month Miley turned 5 years old!! She has beat the odds and is the happiest puppy I have ever seen!!

Cody’s Story

Cody is a fawn 8 year old Mastiff and he has been in remission for 15 months. He was only given 4-6 months to live so we are very grateful he is still with us. Cody had a tumor in his cheek which was histiocytic sarcoma. We did 2 rounds of radiation then 6 rounds of chemo. Today, Cody is doing great and enjoying life with his Bullmastiff brother Khabi and Coonhound sister Copper.

Makayla was diagnosed with leukemia in November 2010. My Labrador Maurea gave her a blood transfusion. After three days at the vet she was able to come home. After 3 years she finally went into remission. Every day with Makayla is a gift from God. I cherish the kisses I get from her everyday.
